Scott Costello All, Blog, Internet Marketing 1 Comment

Rank tracking was the focus of day 9 in the 30 day challenge. The idea here is to keep track of where your domain and posts/articles rank on google for each of your keywords. This is something fun as you can hopefully watch your site rise in popularity and soon to the first page on Google and other search engines.

Google Analytics is the tool of the day and a very important one at that.  On day 7 of the 30 day challenge went over using Google Analytics, creating an ad using Market Samurai and the pretty links plugin. In my mind, the most important thing when trying to develop a website is knowing the stats.  Google Analytics is an awesome free tool that will track TONS of statistics, enough to make you dizzy.  Let me list just some of …

JerryNJ over at flippinghomes.com forum along with another member (sorry can’t remember who) mentioned using zoho.com to help keep track of your daily “To-do” lists.  The tool, within Zoho, that they are using is Zoho Planner.  I’ve used it for the last two days and I like the simplicity of it and will probably continue to use it for the next few weeks to test it out.   Hopefully I can find an iPhone app for it to make it that …

If you want to do well with internet marketing your website has to show up on one of the first few pages of Google.   Where your site appears is called your Google Rank.  It’s not the page you appear on it’s your ranking.  The higher the page rank number the better. In the third day of the 30 day challenge we went over how Google figures out which websites appear on the top few pages for a particular search …
